'I am not the rapist!'

Finally, Rais Yatim came up with a defensive statement, denying all accusation made against him and his family by bloggers and the Opposition on the Net.

So, he wasn't the 'VVIP' who raped his Indonesian maid some four years ago, and his family was not also in any kind of business purportedly 'created' by his political enemies and bloggers who are in a cahoot to bring him down.

Well, at least he has spoken out. Whether or not those with proofs linking him and his family to so many wrongdoings would stand up by their allegation, the least we can expect is the row between him and some bloggers would not end just like that... not for the time being.

I have been waiting for such a statement after my posting on The Minister and a Weakylicks Datuk on Dec 29, 2010. Of course he 'cannot tahan anymore'.

"I refute the allegations, whether they are about raping any individual four years ago (2007) or any other allegation, raised by bloggers on the Internet or by any political entity... I state readily that any report by anyone so far related to this matter should be investigated under the country's laws.

"All written material, reports, extracts and speculation, including illustrations and photographs, published in any blog or website on the Internet so far on the allegation of misconduct or rape of any individual are ill-favoured, malicious and libellous, having been fabricated without any valid legal basis," he said.

Let's wait for response by those who have been attacking him. I could sense the heat is building up! In this modern era, even alibis can be created!

continue reading his statement...

your '... even alibis can be created' is true.

in the spate of pro-govt bloggers attacking the 'zina' opposition figure, i think this is their (the opposition) counter-attack on umno, and the victim is rais.

the said indonesian maid could have lied or asked by someone who tried to stir good relations between malaysia and indonesia.

anyway, we should take into account all possibilities.

hmmm... come to think about it, rais could be right about the allegation against him.

but on the contrary, he would be wrong also.

most important is to conduct a full investigation on the matter.

apsal nak guna nama paklah dan musa hasan pulak ni? bukan diorang yang rogol maid tu!

i dont believe him and i dont believe the bloggers too.

prime minister should call for a full scale investigation. this involves the govt dignity.

if rais is not guilty, fine but if the bloggers are found to be riding a loose proof, they should also be punished.

mestilah dia akan cakap tak buat. tuhan je yang tau dia buat atau tak. amah tu pun mungkin gak temberaang. ni semua cuma kemungkinan. apa yang penting, polis kena siasat jugak. sprm pun boleh siasat. di waktu yang saja, semua tuduhan mesti ada bukti untuk sokong penulis blog terbabit. takkanlah nak biar je benda ni berlarutan.

kesian jugak dato rais ni, asyik kena bedal dengan korang.

apa yang korang sakit ati sgt dengan dia, tuhan je yang tau.

yang penting, dia dah nafi. kalau penafian dia satu pembohongan, dia akan terima padahnya suatu hari nanti.

tetapi jika segala tuduhan bloger terhadapnya pula yang palsu dan dibuat untuk menjatuhkan maruahnya, mereka juga akan terima bahananya suatu hari nanti.

tuhan maha mengetahui!

all this is not healthy to the govt, umno and blogosphere. hope there is a way to mend up things...

your heading should read 'i am not a rapist' instead of 'i am not THE rapist'.

what is your motive, bro?

heck-heck said...

means all the accusations are not true!

so, would there be more from rockybru, bigdog, you and others?

pro-umno bloger hentam pemimpin umno.

pro-pr bloger pun hentam dia.

abih tu, kat siapalah rais ni nak mengadu. so, terpaksa la buat kenyataan penafian.

APER LAGI TUNGGU....SURUH RAIS BERSUMPAH DGN PEGANG AL-QURAN.... MACAM SI SAIFUL TUUU.... BARU BETUL......

maae said...

Main rogol-rogol pulak ye!

Rendah sangat taraf orang berstatus macam ini walhal dia boleh dapat dan boleh buat lebih-lebih lagi dengan petik jari je..

Kalau kita nak bongkar,pergi lah redah semua kelab-kelab eksekutif, eksklusif,kelab-kelab elit (dulu bersepah) apa-apa je diberi nama... "exclusive for members only". Luar negara lagi dahsyat.Ada yang buat 'private mess'. Bawah tanah dalam rumah sendiri pun ada.Semua lengkap.Semua ada.Semua ekslusif.

Masa sekarang tak tahu lah...

Kat situ kita tengok melayu kalut jadi oghang putih..he..he..Kalau dapat masuk la...macam-macam ada..

Rocky, obviosly you are wrong. the way I read it, the "messenger" mention by Rais is himself, who as Minister of Information, Communication and Culture, is the messenger for all the sucesses the government of Malaysia has achieved. Not you. You are nothing more than a messenger of lies and deceit, who will use your position as the so called supremo of the blogger community to spread slightest rumour about some one. From the beggining you know that, as an ex journalist, you should have verified the facts and will not publish anything based on hear say. You admit that, it is rumours about Rais, but you still publish it. that is totally against the ethics of journalism, thus you have brought disgrace not only to yourself but the profession.

saya rasa amah tu yang sengaja nak perangkap rais atas sebab tertentu dan bukannya rogol.

laporan pulak dibuat di indonesia dan bukannya di malaysia.

apa maknanya tu!

let the police investigate.

until someone is found guilty, he is innocent. so, no point to go smearing his name and image, u fools!
